Curt Schilling Just Pisses Me Off (Mike Lupica Too)

Curt Schilling has an opinion on basically everything, and is not at all afraid to share them. It just so happens that I tend to disagree with all of them. Today, when nobody in particular asked him his opinion on Roger Clemens he had this to say:

If that is the case with Roger, the four Cy Youngs should go to the rightful winners, and the numbers should go away if he cannot refute the accusations.

First of all, who asked you Curt? Second of all, why? 1. There is no hard evidence condemning Clemens of steroid use 2. Was he not pitching against steroid users? 3. How do you know the runner-ups (Curt's "rightful winners") were not also steroid users? Because they weren't named by an alcoholic desperate to say out of jail? 4. Taking away the awards would just be wrong. You can't change history. Slavery happened, the holocaust happened, steroids happened. You can't change the past just because you don't like it.

To comment on this without any hard evidence and after Clemens denied it just shows Curt's excellence in the field of douchebaggary. Also, I am a firm believer that Curt Schilling is a steroid user, but that's another story.

Also, found this article by Mike Lupica. Basically, he is saying that if Clemens really didn't take steroids, he should tell his story to Congress. Does Mike Lupica think about what he is saying or does he just write and hope for the best? Don't you think Congress might have more important things to deal with, Mikey? Like, I don't know, the war, the general disapproval of our government, lead-ridden Chinese toys, a lying attorney general, Larry Craig, Iran, etc., etc., etc. No, actually, I see your point Mike. All of those things pale in comparison to Roger Clemens' alleged steroid use.
